Hi all,

It turns out there was a little problem with the logainm import, which
Meenatuggart noticed. There are about ~120 logainm:ref's which are on
more than one OSM object. Duplicate logainm:ref's basically.

I've made a simple page on townlands.ie which shows the problems, so
that we can fix it up.

Please find the page here:


I may add additional "QA" checks to that page when I can think of
additional ones.
